Wind turbine energy may find new home in viaducts

Viaducts could be the ideal location for wind turbines, study finds. Unlike solar energy, which can be installed on land, roofs, and many other places, wind turbine energy is far more limited, and typically requires a vast amount of land in the middle of nowhere or needs to be built offshore for it to generate the amount of power that makes installing the massive turbines worthwhile. However, a new study has found that viaducts may prove beneficial to the future of wind energy. Wind turbines could be built within the…

Bladeless wind generator could be the next big thing for wind energy

An innovative company wants to change how energy is generated from wind. Spanish tech startup Vortex Bladeless is taking a new wind energy generation approach and, instead of using wind turbines with rotating blades, the company has reinvented the standard wind turbine model, creating Vortex, which is essentially a tall mast that looks somewhat like the pole of a standard turbine without the blades. According to the company’s official website, Vortex will be more environmentally friendly, more cost effective, and a more efficient way to produce energy compared to current…
